New Hopwood Field of Dreams


Did you read the letter titled “Hopwood Collapse Final Perhaps” in last Friday’s copy of the Saipan Tribune? Find it online on their Opinion page. Here is a poem pondering the practicality facing reality, being a spontaneous freestyle sonnet rap on that letter which listed some reasons why HJHS or Hopwood Middle School should be built elsewhere: Do you recall the line, “If you build it they will come” from Field of Dreams (the 1989 movie)?

Hopwood Mishaps
Final Perhaps

It means a lot to me
si Joey Connolly
unfortunately others 
don’t want to see
Hopwood free
of imprisonment
by beach and sea. 
my concerned thought
might not be bought
perhaps attention
will be caught
by some in power
new insight sought
benevolent bower
new site for school bell
time and money will tell.

What do you think?
new location site?
is the idea good?
or does it stink?
does it seem right?
for the neighborhood?
put it down in ink!
join the fight!
get understood!

Joey 'Pepe Batbon' Connolly
